Is it possible to make contact with Peter Moses (or to ask Peter to make contact with me)?

I'm presuming that he is one and the same with the Peter Moses who did his teacher training at ASOPA at the same time as me (1963-1964).

I'm trying to contact all my colleagues of those years, and Peter is one of the seven remaining so far untraceable ones.

I'm happy to include my email address: neilandbarb@spin.net.au

Trevor made contact with Peter Moses and Diana and their three children when they were posted to Sighere primary school, Eastern Highlands.

He kindly lent his vehicle to visitors we had from Sydney so they could drive to Mt Hagen. Our children loved his magic shows and when we left PNG we lost touch.

Quiet words in right (or left) ears kept working for me even long after I had hung up my boots and taken up teaching.

Those words resolved several dicey situations while I was at Kabiufa High School (Eastern Highlands), and did so without provoking any animosity.

Indeed, some of those ears became close allies of the school and kept me abreast of any subversive mutterings that might have posed a threat to our program.

It was probably not a 'kiap thing' per se, but simply a willingness to look and listen first, and then to act as appropriate.
